Zhao Wei is a mainland Chinese film actress and pop singer. Audiences sometimes refer to her by her English name, Vicki Zhao (sometimes spelled Vicky Zhao). She has been awarded the Hundred Flowers Award, Shanghai Film Critics Award, Huabiao Award, Golden Eagle TV Award as well as Shanghai Film Festival Golden Globet, amongst others.

After being chosen to work as an extra on a filming set, Zhao developed a love for acting. While studying at Beijing Film Academy, Zhao participated in various film projects. Zhao's breakout role as a leading actress was in Princess Pearl, a Taiwanese television series. In 1999, after Princess Pearl was broadcast, Zhao also began a singing career with her first album, Swallow. After her breakthrough, Zhao was involved in a number of controversies about her personal and professional lives, such as posing in a dress resembling a Japanese war flag. She is considered one of the "Four Young Dan actresses" in China (四小花旦), along with Xu Jinglei, Zhang Ziyi and Zhou Xun.

Zhao rose to international stardom in films such as Stephen Chow's Shaolin Soccer (2001), So Close (2002) and the epic Warriors of Heaven and Earth (2004). In John Woo's historical epic Red Cliff (2009), she played warrior princess Sun Shangxiang.
For her achievements in film, television, and music, Japanese media dubbed her China's No.1 actress, and UK's The Independent described her as "China's box office darling".

She graduated from Teachers' College Elementary School (Shi Fan Fu Xiao) and Teachers' College High School (17th Secondary School Shi Fan). Zhao studied dancing for 3 years, piano for 6 years. And her performance of Tibet dancing has showed on local TV spring festival celebration in 1994.

She married in 2009 with Huang You Long, a property magnate from China. In 11 April 2010, she gave birth to a daughter.
